Tim Price has been a cornerstone of the Antarctic community, first wintering at Davis research station in 1986 as a plumber followed by participation in 26 Antarctic seasons wintering, summering and round tripping.

Tim is a highly respected mentor who goes out of his way to look out for less experienced staff and expeditioners ensuring they are supported. He has provided innovative methods towards safety as well as energy and water conservation, implementing a more efficient way of heat recovery from the station power generation. His extensive knowledge of waste management, water reticulation, heating, ventilation and building systems are invaluable.

On both a personal and professional level, Tim has made an outstanding contribution to the Australian Antarctic Program.
